Not the most exciting aircraft of WW2, but the most common fighter used by the French in 1940, so only having a Dewotine at the moment the M.S. 406 it was an obvious addition to my forces. Not only did I have problems with fitting the pilot (like the LA-7) but the Hobbyboss kit only came with British and Finish decals, so I had to buy some second hand ones. Then the trouble started, the first roundel disintegrated as I tried to position it and part of the second broke up. Therefore I experimented with painting the decals with acrylic varnish first. This gave the decals sufficient strength to position them carefully. Maybe next time I'll give a bit more though to which kits I request for Christmas.
